Businesses today are battling to stay competitive and grow amidst the volatile conditions of the current landscape. Times have changed and so have the needs of enterprises.
The accelerated rate of digital transformation the world has undergone within the past few months have set new demands on the knowledge that a business leader must hold. It is no longer sufficient for top management to solely understand business concepts; it is now also a must for them to grasp the importance of technology in the new post-Covid world.
A McKinsey survey titled “How COVID-19 has pushed companies over the technology tipping point—and transformed business forever,” studied the effects of the pandemic on businesses’ digital transformations and the results showed that the demands have changed. During this time, companies have discovered the importance of digital technologies and their role in their future success.
These statistics indicate there is no turning back. As we continue, businesses will need better infrastructures to facilitate their growing enterprise workloads and data as traditional data centres will not cut it anymore. Although the public cloud is always a low-cost option, most enterprises opt for a hybrid model as it has been observed that they prefer to maintain the bulk of their critical workloads in on-premises data centres. This is where a hyperconverged infrastructure comes into play.
